During an oil spill or a hurricane or a train derailment, Jetty is used to coordinate the public response to the disaster. Status boards are used as an internal way to keep notes and communicate official information to others working the response. This was a redesign upgrade project where I worked closely with a contact in the Army and with several other clients to meet their needs. Numerous interviews were done and desired features cataloged, then wireframes were made and went through numerous iterations until we reached a point where all parties were excited to have this. Then I made mockups in Sketch with both desktop and mobile versions of the screens.
The other interesting thing about this project is that it was an experiment in wedding upfront UX research and design with Scrum processes with two-week sprints. Working closely with the Jetty scrum master, we worked out a series of 1 to 2 sprint goals (each sprint is a 2 week period) where the development team could conceivably finish something pertaining to the project which could then be released as useful to our clients. The wireframes reflected the finished product, but I made 9 sets of mockups for each of the releases. I also wrote extensive Scrum user stories and acceptance criteria for each of the 9 sets of mockups.
